    REI Members get back an estimated 10% on this item as part of their annual member refund.

    The REI Member Dividend

    The REI dividend is a unique benefit of membership in the REI co-op. It's comprised of your member refund—typically 10% back on eligible purchases—and/or your REI Visa® card rebates.

    Each March, active REI members and REI Visa cardholders who earned a rebate receive a refund in the form of an annual dividend notice.

    Only active members receive annual dividend notices. To maintain your active status as an REI member, you need to make net merchandise or shipping purchases of at least $10 per year, unless you joined that year. Member numbers are issued in one name and only that person receives the member refund. Your number can be used by others in your family, but it cannot be transferred to someone else.

    Exotac PolyStriker Firestarteris rated4.0out of5by2.
    Rated3out of5byfromGreat spark. Fragile construction.Being a minimalist backpacker, I loved the Exotac firestarters size and weight. It took up very little space in my pack when stored away and produced a nice, hot spark when needed. My only issue with the firestarter was that the rod snapped off of it's handle with very little (accidental) effort on my part. I know that for "lightwieght" you sometimes have to sacrifice quality, but in my opinion, this firestarter could stand to be slightly more durable. I'm needing a replacement firestarter and will probably not spend the money to buy this same one.

    Rated5out of5byfromGreat, lightweight Ferro RodJust picked this up as a small, lightweight ferro rod. I keep it in my knife sheath. Tried it out this weekend in a few inches of snow in PA. Lit a tinder bundle of (mostly) dry grass and birch bark on one strike. The design is great. The striking steel nests into the handle of the rod, so it's super compact.
